Press Release: Sabayon Linux 5.4 "Experimental Spins" releases

Our crew, is happy to announce the immediate availability of E17, XFCE, LXDE, SpinBase/OpenVZ, ServerBase Sabayon 5.4 "Spins" built on top of Sabayon "SpinBase" ISO images.
Under the "Experimental Spins" umbrella, the Sabayon developers are going to experiment new Stable Releases with different package compositions.
Just like the other regular Sabayon releases, these "Experimental Spins" are also daily built by our Build Servers and available in our mirrors inside the "iso/daily" directory.
The E17 Spin contains the famous, stable-releases-are-for-n00bs, often compared to Duke Nukem Forever, Enlightenment 17 Desktop Environment.
XFCE and LXDE contain, surprise surprise, the respective Desktop Environments, while SpinBase/OpenVZ contains, guess what, an OpenVZ template ready to go!
Last but not least, ServerBase is our first public ISO image, based on SpinBase, powered by a server-oriented Linux kernel.

I downloaded, burned and installed the XFCE Spin 11/03/10 and the only difference I found between it and the 5.3 version upgraded until today was the addition of Abiword, a waste of time IMO. Still, great work guys, keep it up.

Just to clarify, I think the addition of Abiword is a waste of time, I use OpenOffice, so I had to remove it. Everything else works like a charm out of the box, thanks again.

On Mac Os X 10.6.5 I cannot burn ISO images 5.4 Spinbase AMD64, CoreCdX and G versions.
I downloaded them from torrent files, so they're already hash checked.
Every time I tried, I had a strange error:
Code: Select all
Unable to read "/Volumes/ Sabayon CoreCDX /isolinux/boot.cat"

I found no info on Google so I rely on Your expertise to solve the problem...
Thanks in advance!
